|Undecisive God - A Year Of Silence (sham032) - Undecisive God|
A Year of Silence is a year-long field recording project, adapted from the John Cage piece 4’33”. Every week for one year, at a random time I recorded four minutes and thirty-three seconds onto a mini disc. The sounds recorded are mostly the mundane sounds of home; voices of my family, tea being made,baths being poured. In the first track, all 52 recordings are mixed togther, overlaying these incidental sounds to create sound art out of the mundane...

|Various Artists - Behind Closed Doors: Australian Home-recorded Experiments LP (SHAM013) - compiled by Clinton Green.|
Experimental music is thriving in bedrooms and loungerooms across Australia, whether with computer software, 4-track porta-studios or tape recorders. Yet too often the extraordinary output of these artists is only heard by a small amount of people. This compilation, and Shame File Music, is an attempt to bring this new music out from Behind Closed Doors. Compiled and released in 2000.
|Kettle / Undecisive God - Digilogue EP (SHAM014) - Kettle / Undecisive God|
This project was designed as a way of artists collaborating over long distances. Each artist recorded a bed or background for the other artist to record over, with the artist completing the work naming the track and both agreeing on the title of the release.

|Scott Sinclair & Clinton Green - Tamas EP (sham030) - Scott Sinclair and Clinton Green|
The "single" from the forthcoming album by Scott Sinclair and Clinton Green (A.K.A. Undecisive God) featuring the cream of 3 years of guitar improvisations. "Tamas" is one of the most aggressive cuts from the album, whilst the two "b side" non-album tracks on this EP explore more low-key but nonetheless eccentric territories of guitar sound.

|Bite The Capsicum (sham049) - Bite The Capsicum|
If my memory services me correctly, and I think it does, it was in 1995 when I appeared as a contestant upon television program The Iron Chef. Regrettably, my defeat was to such an extent that it would dishonour my ancestors even more to speak of it here. I vowed from that day that I would never cook again. I managed to obtain the network's master copy of this episode, and in a rage wiped the tape so my shame could never be witnessed again...

A hideous, loathsome tribute to the scribblings of seminal horror writer H.P.Lovecraft.
